UNIQUE Business for SaaS (Software as a Service Access Platform)
Fast and secure SaaS access and application platform
Based on the Microsoft RDP 8.0 technology, Microsoft Terminal Server Gateway and the SQL database, our platform offers you individual applications without requiring a Windows desktop.
The system can be used on server farms as well as on stand-alone servers. It includes a load balancing technology, so fast traffic is guaranteed. With its central user administration and management functions you get automatically generated analyses and it is possible to activate scheduled and timecontrolled access options for the users.
You have the possibility to create new users â€“ real or virtual ones. Real users are clients of your SaaS program. Virtual users are for short-term or demonstration purposes. Another special function is to support your users via remote maintenance mode (the admin can take over the session).
The traffic via port 443 is fast and secure, so no modifications are necessary for your firewall or the firewall of your clients. Local resources (like printer or storage) can be integrated in the system.
